my Own wedding is where it all began...

I was so excited to {finally} have the chance to plan my own wedding! I had been dreaming of that day since one month after Matt and I started dating. Yes, that seems like a VERY short amount of time, but I knew he was the one. I just had to be patient until he popped the question.

I knew I wanted to be a DIY bride, and I was inspired by rustic-chic and vintage weddings. I poured my soul into designing the perfect invitation suite, creating favors my guests could enjoy over and over again, and focusing on the little details that most people wouldn't notice.

I could not have gotten through the 8 months prior to my wedding without the support of my husband, family, and friends. I'd especially like to thank my mom and dad for helping execute my own vision flawlessly!
